Campground Overview

SutterCreek Campground offers two ways to enjoy the great outdoors. We have two log cabins  that can be rented for a minimum of 2 days or for a whole week. Plus there are 60+ RV sites that can accommodate anything from a self-contained pop-up camper to the largest of RVs.  Available for a single day, a weekend, a week or even for the entire season.  

We provide opportunities both for the active naturist and the relaxed outdoors man. Bring your canoe or kayak and enjoy a scenic trip down the Sterling creek. For the true adventurer, you can paddle about 4.5 miles down the Sterling Creek to the Fair Haven Beach State Park and out into Lake Ontario.  Take a short walk to enjoy one of the several great fishing holes accessible on the property or enjoy a 

leisurely hike to the old Keville Dam. 

Whether you enjoy nature by yourself or have a family that can't wait to hike, kayak, fish, or bike  together, you'll find we have something for everyone. Maybe a quick game of corn hole or take a shot at shuffleboard. Rainy days won't get you down at SutterCreek, our club house has activities throughout the summer and we also have some old fashioned "games" to borrow to enjoy time together unplugged.  We have large and small swing sets; tether ball; horse shoes and a large groomed grassy area to play kick ball.
